Interesting Fact

The Breton language of France includes the charming and useful word chistra, which means to go from farm to farm asking for cider.


Breton is a Celtic language spoken in Brittany, France. Breton is classified by UNESCO as a “seriously endangered language”.

It originates from the Common Brittonic language spoken in Britain which split into various languages: Welsh, Cornish, Cumbric and Breton.

Cornish is thought to be the most similar language to Breton and shares many words. The shared heritage can also be seen in names of towns, where the prefix “Tre”, meaning “homestead”, is appended to many places in Cornwall (Trethewey, Trevescan, Treyarnon) and Brittany (Tréflez, Tréflaouénan, Trézilide etc).
